Details

Cutthroat is an ultra-endurance bikepacking machine inspired by the unique challenges that the Tour Divide presents. Its lineage led us to a drop-bar mountain bike geometry that provides confidence even in the most challenging riding conditions. Cutthroat’s carbon frame delivers excellent power transfer and its Class 5™ VRS soaks up micro-impacts from the road and trail, preserving your stamina. Ample cargo mounts allow you to configure your load to suit your personal preferences. SRAM’s Apex 1 groupset is a reliable workhorse—perfect for Tour Divide bikes and rigs that will spend a lot of time deep in the backcountry.

With trail-taming compliance and abrasion-resistant plates in high-wear areas, the Cutthroat Carbon fork is designed for the rigors of rides that cover multiple road surfaces in unpredictable conditions

The Class 5™ Vibration Reduction System revolves around seatstays with a tall, thin, vertically-oriented profile that promotes vertical compliance by allowing the seatstays to "flex" outwards on impacts. Horizontally-oriented chainstays work to resist torque and maintain a laterally stiff rear end. The lack of seatstay and chainstay bridges allows the full length of the stays to contribute to flexibility. A rear thru-axle delivers precise tracking while allowing the seatstays to provide incredible compliance

Our drop bar mountain bike geometry features a 69° head tube angle for a long wheelbase that provides supreme stability over long days on any surface. 445 mm chainstays with Class 5 VRS will get you through everything from remote two-track gravel roads to technical singletrack trails, with the efficiency and comfort that endurance riders need to keep at it day after day. Cutthroat is designed for optimized fit with the Salsa Cowchipper or Woodchipper Bars

Designed for maximum frame bag volume on every size. Stay hydrated with room for three bottles on 54–60 cm frames (two bottles on 52 cm frames). The top tube bag mount makes mid-ride refueling easy, and the two Three-Pack mounts on the fork offer extra capacity for gear or water. The Cutthroat carbon fork has internal wire routing for dynamo hub lighting systems. Abrasion-resistant plates reduce frame and fork wear cause by mud and debris
